Overall Satisfaction with Anchor by Spotify

As a podcast platform Anchor serves its purpose of aggregating content to various platforms. The functionality and UI are very simple (which is a PRO and CON), but overall Anchor allows content creators the ability to share their audio (and video) content to the most popular podcast platforms with ease.
  • Simplicity
  • Integration with primary networks
  • Flexibility (with mobile capabilities)
  • Features integrated in platform and app
  • Analytics
  • Advertising opportunities
  • Ease of use
  • Interoperability
  • Integration
  • helped with brand awareness
  • low cost of ownership thus high return on investment
  • low learning curve
Anchor gets the job done. It's free and with the direct ownership of Spotify, there is the ability to have the backing of that large stable organization. Anchor also supports video podcasts - not many of the other podcast platforms support this functionality just yet - a HUGE advantage.

Anchor is free - so that's always appealing. However, like with many things, "you get what you pay for" The basic functionality of being able to host, produce and distribute a podcast is there - so anyone looking to quickly and easily share their content can do that with Anchor. For those looking for more specific controls (such as rich analytics, stronger advertising options, customizable embed options, etc) - Anchor isn't there yet in my opinion.
